A sad but beautiful update to the late rapper Mac Miller’s music: On Friday, Dec. 7, Mac Miller’s album, Swimming, was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards. The album was released in August, one month before Miller’s death at age 26, and his nomination comes exactly three months after it. Fans of Miller are incredibly emotional, and these tweets about Mac Miller’s posthumous Grammy nomination show just how much he is missed.
This is Miller’s first ever Grammy nomination, and Swimming will be up against against Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy, Nipsey Hussle’s Victory Lap, Pusha T’s Daytona and Travis Scott’s Astroworld. Miller’s album initially rose to no. 3 on the Billboard charts when it was released in August, and returned back to the top 10 when it was announced that Miller had died on Friday, Sept. 7 of an apparent overdose.
"Malcolm McCormick known and adored by fans as Mac Miller, has tragically passed away at the age of 26," the rapper’s family told TMZ. "He was a bright light in this world for his family, friends and fans. Thank you for your prayers."
